Although Edinburgh has some shelter from this severe event compared to places like Peterhead, Aberdeen, St Andrew's and North Berwick I think there will be flying roof tiles and masonry in the old city on a busy Friday evening, quite worrying!

Surely we will see a red warning. If this isn’t a candidate for one I don’t know what is?

This looks like it is winding itself up to be a nasty storm. Looking at the Red area, definite sting jet pattern.

i think we are well over for a storm like this. I think its been about 5 or 6 yrs, (maybe more) since we had a storm of this strength.

Of course some remote areas, probably have had storms like this, but arguably this interacts with a more inhabited area of GB

yeh - youve got to think there is some likely hood in this, as its coming straight off the sea, not over land.

I think I'm just outside the red bit but in any case, going to go and make sure there is no debris in my garden that can take off!!

Storm Arwen getting not getting much coverage on the main news channels today, this could catch a lot out later.

North Wales and Mersey side now in Amber warning for Wind

Potential to turn red later I reckon.

Im a celeb might have to postpone activities and shelter the celebs I reckon. Theyre on a cliff facing the wind, alot of the studio they have there is tents made to look like castles. especially the main staudio where Ant and Dec present from.

Red wind warning just issued for eastern Scotland and NE England

Here in Edinburgh, we are just to the west of the red warning area, but I have at least one friend who lives in East L:othian which is inside that red warning area.


For them in particular, it is going to be very nasty later on. Here in Edinburgh, we are still in the amber warning area. Today started off on a bright and sunny note after the cold front had moved through during the early hours of this morning and though it has been fairly breezy up until now, it has been quite calm compared to what we are expecting later on, when I will expect it to be rather nasty even here.


EDIT


The wind is now picking up as I write, but that is probably still nothing compared to what we are expecting later on.

The media really should be taking this one by the scruff of the neck. I didn’t even get a news alert of Sky or the BBC.

The rarity of a red warning should be enough to issue start warnings to the public. Latest info suggest north wales and some parts of the NW should also be in the red zone

Schools have let the children out early here... winds had died down a bit. The calm before the storm! Have checked and I am in the red warning zone.

i think the location of the impact means it of muted interest for the media! i'm fairly sure most workers at the Guardian might think its a long way from Shoreditch.

It was the main story on BBC Scotland this lunchtime.
I suspect the latest grim COVID news has pushed it down the list

The wind at Edinburgh Gogarbank was already gusting up to 35.7 mph from the WNW as at 1pm this afternoon, and is continuing to strengthen as I write. In addition to that, it has now clouded over from the NE where there is quite a lot of precipitation just now.

The latest rain/snow radar maps show that most of the snow is over high ground, but even some coastal areas are seeing some sleet according to that.
